I've taken the last week off to really do not much. Sometimes I just need to do that. It's been nice watching a hockey game with my mom whilst knitting (first time ever!), going through piles of old magazines and removing them from the house (not all magazines age well), baking lots of cookies and eating them, and throwing in a bit of actual work. It's also been great to see people donating so generously to relief efforts in Haiti. As the world knows, the Haitians have a very long road ahead of them, so they need all the assistance they can get, and they seem to be getting it.
The Winter Olympics are right around the corner so I thought I'd do a post on Omer Arbel, the architect and industrial designer who created the 2010 Olympic medals. Have you seen them yet? Click here for a look and a video. Really interesting to hear how they came about this design. Love them? Hate them? Not sure? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
I shot Omer for Canadian House and Home a few months ago. He's featured in the Style Files section of the current issue. He was lovely to work with, as was everyone that works with him.
The image at the top, and all the following images, are from that shoot. I love a good, open, warehouse space.
